Citrus Sweets Cupcakes- A Sweet Birthday Surprise!

As all my regular readers know, I love cupcakes. I've written several articles a few years ago about what I thought were the Top 5 Cupcakes in Hong Kong and my various experiences with the cupcake craze. (Some people say it may have died and passed onto the macaroon, but as a person with an almond allergy I say, "Long Live the Cupcake Trend!")


They even added a cute birthday message!

A couple weeks ago, I was on twitter when I got a very sweet tweet from Citrus Sweets Cupcakes in TST. They had read a couple of my reviews and wanted to know if I was interested in trying theirs out. I said, "Sure thing!" because I love cupcakes and it was my birthday that week. Totally, meant to be... *Let the music play*

Before 30 Bucket List: The Challenge Begins!



On August 15th, 2014 I'll be turning the big 3-0. For some people this is scary. I remember there was this episode of Friends I saw as a teen where Joey was crying into a sad birthday cake screaming "We had a deal!" at the sky. For some people 30 is a revolutionary age, I think the Sex and the City factor had a lot to do with this. For me, age is just a number but 30 is a pretty significant number.


Since I turned 20, I've accomplished a lot in my life. I graduated college, and my Masters, I had my first paying job, I moved abroad, I had my first messy breakup, had my first drink, (at the legal age of 21, like a good girl), made new friends, dumped some bad ones, made a lot of good art, made some not so good art, explored the world and myself.

Shakespeare in the Port is coming!

We only have two weeks left until the Shakespeare festival is open! Yea!

Shakespeare in the Port is Hong Kong's first outdoor theatre festival. We're dedicated to exposing to kids to the arts in a fun, casual atmosphere. We are created by the artists of Hong Kong for the people of Hong Kong. When I started the festival 4 years ago, people were telling me the only way it would be successful was if I brought in fancy tours from England.

I call BS.

We received a small grant to help cover our production costs but a majority of our funding came from crowdfunding. That's right, our funding came from the people. This proves that our community is passionate about bringing a home grown, outdoor festival to Hong Kong.

Our two mainstage shows are The Taming of the Shrew and The Tragedy of Miss Julius Caesar. We also have special events on Easter Sunday, Shakespeare's Birthday Party and an Open Cast Party on May 4th. 

Here's our youtube promo for the festival.


Tickets can be purchased through Ticketflap.

Crowdfunding for Shakespeare Fest!

We launched a crowdfunding campaign for Shakespeare in the Port.

Shakespeare in the Port is a simple vision of bringing affordable, accessible Shakespeare to the public of Hong Kong. Oftentimes people think of Shakespeare as boring or too expensive to attend. We wish to break down these barriers and create an artistic experience that people of all ages can enjoy. 

We wish to create a theatre festival that is locally produced by the Hong Kong art community and inclusive to people of all backgrounds. Ticket prices will be affordable and the performance space will be handicap accessible.

Please help us spread the word. If everyone who sees our Fringe Backer donates 5HKD or .62USD we'll have the funding we need in less than a day!

Every dollar helps us make our dream come true of an accessible, affordable Shakespeare festival created by the artists of Hong Kong. All kids can enter the festival for free! I'm happy to answer any questions about the festival.

You can also find out more about the festival via our facebook page:

Shakespeare in the Port Auditions!!!!

Most of you are hooked into my other blog and social media channels but just in case you aren't here's a reminder that Shakespeare in the Port auditions are tonight and next Sunday!!!!

YEA!

Anybody can audition. No matter how tall, what age or what language you speak. We need tons of actors to be involved with the festival and BONUS you all get paid a stipend for your time.

Reservations for auditions are preferred. (That way we know you're coming...) But if not walk-ins are totes welcome. We also will have monologues on hand in case you don't have anything in your rep to pull out.  If you're out of town but still want to be involved with the festival we can arrange private auditions or you can submit your monologue via youtube!
